BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At MasterTech Automotive, we want our Colchester customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 802-652-9991, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services MasterTech Automotive offers.

Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit MasterTech Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at MasterTech Automotive about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.

Caliper Replacement
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact MasterTech Automotive as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. MasterTech Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

My wife's car needed a brake repair quickly. Remembered having great service before at MasterTech back in 2016, and that's what we got again. Fast, friendly, reliable and affordable service. Highly recommend giving MasterTech Automotive a try.



What Our Customers Are Saying

I showed up first thing in the morning and was greeted by Keith. He said good morning and asked how he could help. I explained my situation with my car and listened and stayed calm and said that even though they were busy he would work it in and check back at the end of the day. I get a notification midday that the car was done! He picked me up in my car!! No smoke and mirrors, straight talk from Keith! The best service I've experienced from a repair shop. He dropped me off and picked me up. He was knowledgeable and stayed calm. If I need the car serviced again, I'm not calling anyone else.

I wanted a second opinion on fixing the convertible top on my older BMW. I am so glad I did. Keith researched the issue and fixed it quickly and reasonably. I would recommend this garage to anyone.

I dropped my car off at Master Tech in Colchester to have my snow tires taken off and the regular tires put on. I left a note asking if he could help with the battery. Keith called me first thing the next morning and said he would drop my car off at my home and charge my car battery for me. Talk about service..........I have always been happy with the mechanical and customer services at MasterTech and I highly recommend Keith.
